Australia have recalled pacer Andrew Tye as a replacement for Pat Cummins for the three T20 Internationals against India.
Cummins has been left out for the T20 matches to give him some rest ahead of the upcoming Ashes series. Cummins has played all three matches in the ODI series so far.
Tye, a T20 specialist, has played five matches for Australia and last represented the country in February.
According to cricket.com.au, Tye has replaced Cummins for the series beginning in Ranchi on October 7.
The second and third game will be played in Guwahati and Hyderabad on October 10 and 13 respectively.
Tye has not played any cricket since dislocating his shoulder during the Indian Premier League earlier this year.
Playing for Gujarat Lions this IPL, Tye had enjoyed moderate success, including a match-winning hat-trick against Pune, until he suffered the shoulder injury.
